Red Beard (Akahige) Red Beard (Akahige)
Part of the “Enter the Samurai” Film Series sponsored by U-M Center for Japanese Studies.

Aspiring to an easy job as personal physician to a wealthy family, Noboru Yasumoto (Yûzô Kayama) is disappointed when his first post after medical school takes him to a small country clinic under the gruff doctor Red Beard (Toshirô Mifune). Yasumoto rebels in numerous ways, but Red Beard proves a wise and patient teacher. He gradually introduces his student to the unglamorous side of the profession, ultimately assigning him to care for a prostitute (Terumi Niki) rescued from a local brothel.

Presented in Japanese with English subtitles.
